How much does a Blue Martini franchise owner make?

As with any new investment opportunity, there needs to be a reasonable ROI and profit potential. The specific franchise owner's income and the profits from a Blue Martini business depends on a lot of different factors. One way to validate the potential revenues or profits generated from a Blue Martini franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their FDD. This is called a financial performance representation. This is an option for franchisors within their disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchisors that we have reviewed will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchisors may provide limited information such as average gross revenues. This type of financial disclosure is not always helpful to determine profits for you directly. So review overall sales data with caution. As a general rule, usually earnings and owner's salary are equitable to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher return you could anticipate
